Nissan Pathfinder Model Years

, Automotive Editor -

Nissan introduced the truck-based Pathfinder to North America in 1985. The Japanese automaker conceived the rugged SUV as a direct response to the popularity of rivals like the Jeep Cherokee, Chevrolet Blazer and Toyota 4Runner.

That first-generation Pathfinder introduced a styling cue still seen on the Xterra and Armada: rear door handles integrated into C-pillar trim.

Now in its fourth generation, and using car-like unibody construction, the current Pathfinder is more crossover than SUV. It does, however, offer more interior features and on-road comfort than any previous Nissan Pathfinder.

Major changes included:

The Pathfinder underwent a dramatic transformation for 2013, leaving behind its rugged off-roader roots to become a sophisticated, versatile crossover. Gone is the roaring V8 engine; the new Pathfinder has a competent 3.5-liter V6 with 260 horsepower. The refreshed cabin is much roomier and offers more family-friendly features. Fuel economy, a major selling point, is greatly improved over 2012. For 2014, a Pathfinder Hybrid model joins the lineup.
